LES Public Art and More Adventures In Maps

03.04.10 Marina Galperina

We should see some sunshine by Saturday, so here’s your free, sad art fair alternative: a recently updated, self-guided walking tour of public art/monumnets/etc of LES, including Jeff Koons’ spin on Lucky Cheng’s genital balloonery. Even better, here are some maps of David Byrne’s winsome bike racks and NYC bike lanes.

And now, the janky amusements: Pathophobic/have a fetish for hypochondriacs? There’s a “who’s sick?” map. No health insurance? There’s a map of prescription-med infected waters (free!). Got a body disposal problem? There’s a roadless land map. What happens if you dig a very, very deep hole? Find out. Cartography is the shit!
